Recently we saw the Delhi gangrape incident shown on Sony TV’s Crime Patrol and now the news is that Bollywood actor Jiah Khan’s suicide case will be told in Channel V’s popular show Yeh Hai Aashiqui.
According to the grapevine, “The story revolves around a film actress, who, while on top of her game, falls in love with a director’s son and gets extremely possessive about him. The boy, an aspiring actor, ends up signing a film with her, but after she delivers a string of flops, replaces her with a newbie. Unlike Jiah, who took her life by hanging herself from a fan, the actor in the show will jump off the fourth floor of her building. The central characters will be played by Mihika Verma and Rithvik Dhanjani, while Bobby Darling will play her friend and business manager.”
